Let’s Get Sassy with Pootea Tang from Modest Mix. . . .

Modest Mix has some seriously sassy tea names, often involving satisfying expletives.  If that sounds up your alley, I highly recommend browsing their store for some blends with fired up names that suit your attitude.  The blending services of BlendBee were used to craft these teas, so you know they will be flavorful and balanced.

In line with the Modest Mix theming, the Pootea Tang blend is a bold and flirty treat.  With cacao nibs and orange peel, it is equal parts smooth and chocolatey, and bright and tangy.  Juicy citrus is the driving force in this blend, powered up even more by the complementary flavors of tart rose hips. The taste of the cacao nibs and the black tea itself come to light in the back of each sip, and in the soft mouthfeel that follows the first burst of orange.

In a stroke of tea-blending genius, this blend uses an assam black tea base.  The assam is strong enough to carry the flavorful orange, but smooth enough to compliment the cocoa, dessert-like flavors. This is a tasty blend when you are feeling a little sweet and sour and want a tea blend to match your mood.

Here’s the scoop!

Jumpin’ Jelly Beans from The NecessiTeas. . . . .

Picture this: it’s Easter. You’re eight years old. You see a big ol’ bowl of jellybeans sitting on the kitchen table, waiting for family members to arrive to celebrate and nosh on.

Now picture this: you’re uncomfortable in your Easter dress. You’ve been at church all day. Your kitchen smells delightful, but you have to wait until everyone comes before you can eat anything. You just want A FEW JELLYBEANS, dangit. So you fish out as many of the green beans as you can find, toss them in your Easter hat and sneak away to have a little pre-dinner aperitif.

And then everyone comes for dinner and no one even questions the lack of green jellybeans in the bowl. If there aren’t any at all, did they ever exist in the bowl in the first place? Mwahaha.

You guys– this tea is a perfect recreation of those sugar-filled springtime holiday memories of yore. I iced my sample of this one, because hello– and that was the right decision. It’s a sweet, fresh, fruity candy-Cherry flavor, and makes for a delightful chilled treat anytime of the day, given its lack of caffeine. I could see this one being a great tea for little ones to sip on, as well. This one reads more like a treat tea than an everyday tea for me, but it was especially delightful and spot-on to the flavors noted. And would probably be a great sipping companion to an Easter-hat filled with green jellybeans. Not like I would know.

Hot Mama from Tea and Tins- Take a Look, Sprinkles!!

I’ve never been called one “Hot Mama” before but I felt like one while sipping on Hot Mama by Tea & Tins. Okay…maybe that was a stretch but it made for a good review opening, right?

There have been teas I have sipped on that provide that childhood memory of fireballs and Hot Mama from Tea & Tins is very reminiscent of those days and memories. It might not be exactly that hot but it could be put in the same conversation, I suppose.

Even tho I didn’t find any cinnamon hearts in the loose leaf mixture that I infused I didn’t feel slighted. The cinnamon flavor and spices were just fine and dandy the way they were. I also enjoyed the orange peel chunks in this flavored black tea.

Hot Mama by Tea & Tins is perfect for a fall or winter day or a night by the fire.

Here’s the scoop!

Here at the SororiTEA Sisters a few of us may not be very ‘Lady Like’ so when I saw pssst!……..Who Farted? Tea from Adagio Signature Blends by Jeffrey McWhirter I was a little TOO EXCITED to try it!

Today’s Vegan MoFo prompt is Silly Fun Day! How could I NOT tie in pssst!……..Who Farted? Tea from Adagio Signature Blends by Jeffrey McWhirter? I mean…c’mon. The name alone screams silliness!

This tea base is made up of black tea and honeybush and contains cinnamon bark, natural pumpkin spice flavor, orange peels, cloves, ginger root, natural creme flavor, natural orange flavor, marigold flowers, cardamom. It’s accented with apple pieces, cranberry, and orange peels, too! What’s REALLY cool is that Adagio’s Cream is dairy-free!

Tea from Adagio Signature Blends by Jeffrey McWhirter is a good flavored tea to start with! The sweet of the honeybush, the black tea base I know and love, the pumpkin, orange, and cranberry flavors you seek in a holiday bread, and the spices, fruit, and creaminess on to the aftertaste. There is so much going on here and so many layers of flavor but everything works so well together and I have to say it’s pretty amazing to see, smell, and taste!

Bubblegum from The NecessiTeas

Bubblegum Tea from The NecessiTeas was something I just HAD to look into when I saw it! Here at Sororitea Sisters we review A LOT of teas! To date nearly 5,000 teas, actually! And with all of those teas we review we have reviewed our fair share of Earl Grey’s and English Breakfasts but how many people can say they have a library full of Bubblegum Teas they have reviewed?

After looking into our past reviews – to make sure I ‘speak the truth’ I was able to find ONE other Bubblegum Tea that we have reviewed and that was a Bubblegum FLAVORED Tea from when Southernboy Teas’ FRANK who used to also own 52 Teas before Anne bought it from him. The review dated back to 2012. So it just goes to show you that Bubblegum Teas aren’t very common and here at Sororitea Sisters we are always trying to find new, different, unique, and rare teas! Bubblegum Tea from The NecessiTeas is one of those teas.

Bubblegum Tea from The NecessiTeas is a flavored green tea. It actually HAS gum balls IN the loose leaf mixture along with green tea, red and blue cornflower petals, marigold petals, and natural flavors!

The flat green tea leaves are a vibrant color as are the rest of the ingredients in the mix. Once infused everything comes alive! The post-infusion color is a slightly murky grey-brown that is light to medium in color.

As a child I remember the bubblegum in baseball card packets that was coated in powder. That’s the bubblegum type of aroma I am getting here with this tea. Pair that with sweet, fruity, and a nice even-steven green tea flavor and BAM that sums up this tea! And it’s pretty tasty to boot!

Bubblegum Tea from The NecessiTeas is a FUN and flavorful tea and I’m glad it’s out on the market! The search continues for other NovelTEAs. Until next time!

We all remember that sweet pink bubblegum flavor as a kid. Contests with your best friend to see who could blow the biggest bubble and then having it pop and stick to your entire face. Chewing it for hours until our jaws ached or falling asleep with it in our mouth which meant waking up with a big sticky mess in our hair! This blend takes me back to all those childhood memories and will be loved by adults and children of all ages. Feel free to steep the actual gumballs or pop one in your mouth and work on your bubble blowing skills while your tea is steeping!
